@TakingNotes relatable
 
8:08 AM
@TakingNotes You know what, since leaving Uni (where I did a very mathematics-heavy course) a whole [NUMBER REDACTED] years ago, I never have integrated anything ever again. The dream may happen for you too!

Q: A Trivial Pursuit #12 (Sports and Leisure 2/4): Logic Boat

StivThis is part 12 of A Trivial Pursuit, a 25-part puzzle hunt. Each part is solvable on its own, with the exception of the meta-puzzle at the end. This is a variation on a Battleships puzzle, where the custom fleet of ships to be placed includes some that are irregularly-shaped. In the spirit of J...

@Stiv you're saying it hasn't been integral to your everyday life?
 
having trouble integrating into society, perhaps
 
@GentlePurpleRain I think this was confirmed correct.
Not rushing you: just making sure you realize.
 
well more-or-less correct, anyway

@Stiv I tutor calculus, thus pushing such a prophesized day further into my future

CCCC: Galleon has nearly five hundred abaft of every deck, woven thru craft. (4)
@TakingNotes, if you're taking notes :P : Technically the enumeration for that one should have been (3'1 6)
 
3:06 PM
@GentlePurpleRain in the harry potter universe a galleon is equivalent to 17*29 = 493 knuts, and wouldn't you know it, KNUT is the last letters of "deck woven thru craft"
 
3:22 PM
@juicifer You got it!
 
it's a good(?) thing my brain is still poisoned enough that when I see the word "galleon" I think "wizard coin"
maybe one day
CCCC: City manager to allow George Harrison's ex-wife to tour New York production (10 6)

Q: Another nonogram with story

cdmAnother nonogram with story but this time it's ZEBRA type. Clues in darker color describe what should be marked as FILLED. Clues in lighter color describe what should be marked as BLANK. After my Husband died, I couldn't even look at another Man for almost 20 years. But now that I'm [Solve to ge...

 
4:25 PM
@juicifer PEPPERMINT PATTY = PEP +PERMI(N)T+PATTY
defn York production (nice)
 
Note that both the woman and the confection are spelled PATTIE, not PATTY, which fits with @juicifer's enumeration.
 
@GentlePurpleRain oops too much Peanuts
 
yep, there you go
I was surprised at the spelling too when I first looked it up, but york spells it with the I-E
 
@juicifer Some lovely misdirection there, both with "City manager" and "New York production".
 
thanks!

Q: What relates Thor and some 84 inches object in his majesty's land?

Himanshu SinghSo I have been asked this puzzle/riddle and I have been provided with the following two cryptic hints. I have been rather stuck and cannot work out a solid connection between the two hints. Hint 1: Thor couldn't save his side in the endgame when God said, "Win, my son!" Hint 2: On 84 inches of h...

 
@DanielS SHAKE IT OFF, a potential wordplay for AS KEITH*
 
@juicifer Indeed, correct!
 
and a work by Swift, in case anyone isn't down with the youths
 
( @juicifer nice surfaces in your latest alphametic btw, I like how they're related to math)
 
5:17 PM
@oAlt thanks! I've been trying to sort-of theme each one since it makes it a bit easier to focus the clue-writing process, and I thought it'd be fun to do a math one since it is a division problem after all
 
@juicifer D'ANDRE Swift, seen during an NFL game this weekend wearing white = (D<-)AND RE(<-d) (with the bottom letter being moved to the top)

forgot to include the link
 
I am in the presence of greatness.
 
@oAlt right on :)
 
obviously an ompmise is an assumption
I don't even need to look it up to know that
but no it's a pre* m_ i_ s_ e_ @oAlt
 
@juicifer yes :)
 
great surface too
 
haha thanks
 
CCCC: Maybe Martin Luther King, Jr. took on state and national leaders to receive the highest of honors (9)
 
5:58 PM
Hmmm... was Martin Luther a PHRINSNCE
 
I can't find any evidence that he wasn't a phrinsnce
 
"King, Jr." could also refer to Gerald Ford (born Leslie Lynch King Jr.) or to the Burger King kids' menu.
 
6:14 PM
If Critia could be called a "King Jr." (which he/she could not in fact), we'd have Christian (maybe Martin Luther). #GreatC4Solutions
 
Why couldn't the child of someone named King be called a "King Jr."?
If I didn't know the name of your child (presuming you have any), I might say, "How is little msh210 Jr?"

Q: What could this possibly mean?

Himanshu Singh Not sure what it is. Seems like some sort of code. I thought of Morse code but the last six - do not translate to anything in text. Can someone help me out.

 
6:56 PM
@juicifer ha, just realized this is the second time I've clued the first name of a former Georgia Bulldogs and Detroit Lions running back by exploiting a double meaning of their last name
that's not a lot, but it's weird that it's happened twice
 
 
1 hour later…
8:17 PM
@GentlePurpleRain He could, but this is King's slave, not King's child.
 
8:30 PM
Ah, I misread that as him naming them all as adopted children.
